Honeymoon at Secret Gardens
Honeymoon at Secret Gardens
Overall, we had a fantastic time. Secret Gardens was the perfect spot to get away from it all. It's truly a diamond in the rough... We can't wait to go back! :-)

My new wife and I just returned from an absolutely amazing honeymoon at Secret Gardens. The house gave us the seclusion we were desperately craving after our wedding. But at the same time, we were looking for some adventure. We spent some of our days secluded by the pool and simply sitting on the porch admiring the view. However, there was also plenty to explore and see outside the house. We spent a day snorkeling in the different bays around St. John, which was a short ferry ride away. The owner arranged private massages, a private chef, and even hired a captain to take us out on his boat where we enjoyed a private beach and even more snorkeling. We found shopping in Charlotte Amalie, and spent hours simply riding around the island exploring in our rental car. The masseuse, chef, and staff were extremely pleasant and warm people. The property was looked over by a man named Winston. Anytime we needed anything he was only a short ride away and always arrived with a smile on his face. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who seeks seclusion but is still looking to explore and for anyone trying to avoid the crowds and touristy nature of most large hotels.

Secret Gardens... Paradise Found
Secret Gardens... Paradise Found
Last week my wife and I stayed at Secret Gardens for the most incredible vacation we have ever taken. The pictures do not do this place justice. From the moment you walk into the house you feel a sense of peace and tranquility come over you that stays with you throughout your stay. The house itself is beautiful with its high vaulted ceilings and chef’s kitchen to the huge bedroom and luxurious bathroom. After we dropped off our luggage, we went out to the wrap around porch to take in the amazing views of Magen’s Bay and the expansive coral reef just below. This became one of our favorite places for our stay as we ate nearly every meal on the porch watching the birds, fish and other wildlife that surrounded us. As much as we enjoyed lounging on the porch, we also really enjoyed the private pool and spent several afternoons relaxing in its tranquil waters while watching the sunset over the bay. The owner of the property went way above and beyond to make our experience one we would never forget. He arranged for us to have a couple’s massage one morning that we both really enjoyed. He also arranged for a chef to come in and cook dinner for us. The meal was as good as you would find in any 5 star restaurant. He also took us on a private charter boat for us to go see some of the nearby islands and do some snorkeling. The boat was incredible and that adventure was one of the highlights of the trip. We would highly recommend it to anyone. Although the accommodations were outstanding and the amenities were far beyond anything we had hoped for, what really made the trip special was the owner. He was the perfect host and went out of his way to pamper us and take care of our every request. He was never intrusive and his attention to detail was second to none. He made us feel like we were the king and queen of St. Thomas. He met us at the airport even though our flight was seven hours delayed. He took the time to ride around the island with us to show us the best restaurants, beaches and attractions. He arranged for the boat, massages and chef all before our arrival which made our stay absolutely stress free. Above all he is genuinely one of the most gracious and generous people we have ever met. Werner, thank you so much for our dream vacation. We will definitely be back!

We were married in June and brought our teenage daughters here on our "familymoon". This property is amazing and every bit as beautiful as the pictures indicate. We were right in the middle of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" although we are not either! The open floor plan was lovely and the gourmet kitchen made me actually WANT to cook - despite the fact that we were on vacation! Our daughters had their own floor with a small kitchen, seating area, bedroom and two bathrooms (no arguing!). We were separate but together. The staff was so accomodating and helpful. Every restaurant they recommended was more fabulous than the last! We chartered the boat for a day and had our own guided tour of the local islands and the best snorkeling ever. One night a private chef came and cooked dinner for our family. It was one of our highlights! Magens Bay Beach was wonderful and included rental chairs and a very good restaurant and bar right on the beach. We liked it so much, we spent several days there, followed by evenings in the pool. This is a wonderful venue for a family or two couples looking to get away. The area is secluded and serene. We loved watching the pelicans dive bomb the fish! But you are 20 minutes away from the nightlife of town. I highly recommend it and cannot wait to return!

Secret GardensGuest comment entered by owner
If you are looking a wonderful place to stay in St. Thomas, I would highly recommend Secret Gardens.This house is perfect for any type of vacation.There were 3 of us on this trip–all ladies; youngest was 18. This house is perfectly situated to capture the beauty that is St. Thomas. The views from the house are breathtaking. The house itself has been masterfully thought out. It brings in the essence of the magnificent surroundings into the house. For instance, there is a huge rock that starts in the kitchen on the main level, then to the half bath and then it goes down to the lower level bathroom which becomes the rock shower. The shower head actually comes out of the rock. There are several levels of covered verandah so you can maximize your enjoyment of the great outdoors. There is this gorgeous tree which part of the verandah is built around. To enjoy more awesome scenery, we took a nice jaunt to Picara Point. This is not to be missed if you are staying at Secret Gardens. This stunning house has a mural of the idyllic surroundings in the dining/living room area. The master bedroom on the main level and the adjoining bathroom are huge and very comfortable. This bathroom has an enormous walk in shower for 2, a gigantic tub and double sinks. I am very particular about bathrooms and this one more than met my standards/expectations. The kitchen was well-appointed as well. It comes more than fully equipped so you can whip up a gourmet meal. Cassandra with Passion Fruit Chefs came in and prepared a wonderful dinner for us one night. If you have the chance, I would highly recommend having her prepare a meal or 2. The infinity pool is another special feature. In the pool,you can easily lose yourself in the beautiful surroundings. We received a real treat when we met the owner, Werner, who happened to be in town. He was such a delight and an ace in suggesting things to do and places to eat. He did an outstanding job ensuring that our stay would be wonderful. One of the most memorable things we were able to do was to go boating with Werner–not just any boat,but a speed boat.Normally I am not one to go boating, but we all agreed that it was fantastic experience and one that we would readily do again.The house is located near Magens Bay which is one of the most beautiful beaches beautiful beaches in the world-go enjoy the sunset.This house has so many extraordinary and sophisticated features that the pictures do not do it justice. We would definitely stay here again.

We just returned from an awesome weeks stay at Secret Garden. The pictures display truly the beauty of this villa. Couldn't really have asked for more! Views spectacular, Magans Beach, sunsets amazing, snorkeling great right off the property. Saw sea turtles, tropical fish, coral & even a dolphin! The birds & pelicans were such a delight. Parakeets, finches, and lots of amazing Iguanas. Pool wonderful. Mega Yachts like the Blue Moon & Sailboats coming right into Magens Bay, Wow! We rented a car & had no problem navigating the island. The hosts really described this place to a tee. Thank you Werner, Cheryl & Winston for making our family trip unbelievable. Will be back!!
